He comes from Austria and yet again he is a Wiganer! Paul Scharner!
His absents from the squad at the weekend was telling. Rumours had already been around about the strikers future, then following the FA Cup win Martinez confirmed the players as gone to Italy.
The third choice Athletic Madrid goalkeeper has now become Wigan Athletic's second choice goalkeeper as competition for Ali Al Habsi. It shows that our dear old friend Mike Pollitt is at the end of his day with Wigan Athletic, as Martinez looks for f
This one hasn't been much of a secret yet it is now finally done. The striker joins us on loan till the end of the season, and will come in as cover for Arouna Kone while he is off playing in the African Cup of Nations.
This one could have been a very long drawn out saga. Yet Roberto Martinez wanted his man, and he got exactly what he wanted.
The Honduran who stunned the world of football, at the Olympics, with an inspirational performance against Brazil, where he controlled the midfield has signed for Wigan!
The younger keeper is making big waves at the League Two team, who have leaped at the chance to resign the English goalkeeper.
Well over the next 48 hours or so, the whole make up of the current Wigan Athletic squad could change. It can be that simple, the people that move in the last two days can make or break transfer deadline days, this year again will be no exception....
Well he has gone, finally it has to be said. If anyone thought it would be worth keeping the 21 year old after he has had his head turn would be stupid, I am sorry to say. We are better of grabbing, what is a ridiculous sum of money.....
Wigan fans, we have been a bit itching to see who the club would sign this summer. With several players leaving on a free and Victor Moses all but out the door this summer. We expected several signings, and we got one early........
Well the deal for this young man was let out the bag, when fan favorite Ali Al Habsi tweeted about the impending deal for Ryo Miyaichi. And like many expected, the deal has been confirmed today with the young winger joining the side on loan.....
Over night it looked, and it did look very much like, Victor Moses was set to sign for Chelsea in the coming hours. The belief across the internet was that Chelsea and Wigan had agreed a £9 million fee for the player and the player was on his way to
What a strange feeling it is. Do you know what I mean, when your football team actually manages to fend of competion for your top target, and in the procces sign him, from under the noses of one of your rival teams.....
Ivan always looked to be Roberto Martinez's first signing this summer. The 27 year old defender is set to leave the sunny climate of Mallorca this summer and travel to England, the player has expressed a wish to do so.
After week, and weeks and even a week longer. Wigan Athletic fans can finally start to celebrate their first summer signing with a 19 year old Scottish midfielder in the Wigan area having a medical and holding contract talks. A few days ago when Sky
Well three of our free agents have now found new clubs. Chris Kirkland and Mohamed Diame both signed for new clubs earlier on (Sheffield Wednesday and West Ham United respectively), while it has taken longer for Rodallega to find his club, apparently
Yesterday the second of our stragglers signed for their new club, and it was the turn of Mohamed Diame to depart and stretch out. Of course such a talented player would make the step to a big team, where he would play European football next season, and even play for a team in the title challenge. Wait a minute he signed for West Ham United, how did that happen?
Well its a sorry time to be a Bolton fan, are we going to rub it in? Probably they have always said they were better and bigger than us, it doesn't look like for much longer. But lets not get dragged down in the dirt over that. What I am interested in, is that fact that they have released a total of 12 players who are now avaliable on a free.
Well its been a busy Wednesday. Haven't 25 days of quite everything seems to be going off at once, and today gave us not one but two massive surprises. First about lunch time (UK time) the club released an official statement, saying that Nicky Maynard was not on his way to Wigan.
Today the club has confirmed that young defender Roman Golobart will remain on loan with Inverness CT for the remainder of the current playing season.
Poor poor Chris Kirkland. He hasn't had a good spell the past few years, and his run of bad luck looks set to continue. He was never meant to remain out of the Latics side for very long (until Ali stole our hearts). But could his latest set back, run his career.
Chris Kirkland has more or less officially moved to Doncaster Rovers. The move has looked like it would come to a halt after Martinez said Kirkland was wanted at Latics. However that hasn't stopped Donny getting their man, who will remain on loan till January.
